a) T: Most forms of environmental pollution are associated with industrialization.
Q: Industrialization has led to pollution problems.
b) T: Los Angeles has some of the world’s cleanest cars—far better than those of Europe—but the total number of miles those cars drive continues to grow.

此题原文转折词but所连接后面的内容continues to grow与问题中的考点tending to reduce形成语义矛盾。

List of headings
I.Rivers and seas cause damage
II.Water, the provider of food
III.The scarcity of water
IV.What is water?

分析：此段开头先提出了“根据预测到2025年世界上将有三分之二的人口喝不到淡水”接着分别用转折词but，while进一步提出某些地区由于洪水泛滥带来的破坏，在其它许多地方水的缺失已变得日趋严峻。接着从“The state of Texas…water sources”通过一个细节举例 (德克萨斯州的人们正在饱受缺水之苦)来作进一步说明。
